How do I know if my child needs glasses?
How do I know if my child needs glasses?1
Taking your child to an optometrist for an eye exam is the best way to learn if your child needs glasses. Many children who need glasses aren’t aware that they do. Signs of vision problems in children include sitting too close to the television, squinting, sensitivity to light, difficulty with eye-hand coordination, and avoiding visual activities like reading and drawing. To see if your child needs glasses, schedule your child’s eye exam today.
How does vision change with age?
How does vision change with age?1
Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.
Who can wear contact lenses?
Who can wear contact lenses?1
Nearly anyone who needs vision correction can wear contact lenses. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or a combination of these issues. Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
DRIVE SAFE WITH SUNGLASSES
As our days get longer, it’s important to take extra precaution on the road. Wear sunglasses every time you drive to make sure you’re protecting you and your family. Wearing polarized sunglasses or transitions lenses are a must when driving during the day, not only to block UV rays, but to minimize road glare from the sun and other objects. If you have astigmatism, that can cause extra sensitivity to glare and light while driving. Talk to your eye doctor about any discomfort you are experiencing, and we can help you select the lenses that work best for you. Lastly, keep your eyes healthy on the road by always making sure your prescription is up to date. We can help you and the family find the right sun protection for when you’re on the go, whether you’re looking for prescription sunglasses, non-prescription sunglasses or light-responsive lenses. We are conveniently located next to your local Target store!
